Best Food Ever. Cajun Kates Gumbo. NJ Bagel. Crotch Pains.



Do you ever eat something and declare, "That's the best one of those I ever had"?

I think a lot of people don't do it because they think, "I must have a had a better one at some point"*.

But not me. Last week I had the best Gumbo I've ever had. I got it at Cajun Kates at the Booths Corner Farmers Market. After every bite I felt like saying, "Uhhh. Uhhh. This is the best I ever had". But nobody was there to annoy so I silently ate it.

Then, this weekend I had a bagel while I was in Scotch Plains, NJ. I forget the name of the place, so maybe Mr or Mrs CrotchPains can chime in.

It was an everything bagel. It had the perfect chewiness to it and the flavor was "far out" as the hippies used to say.

So what did you have in the past few months that you could declare was the best ever? Hmmm..

*And some of you people never want to declare that something you just ate is the best because you're the type that says, "That's the best you ever had? I've had so much better". Because you need to top everyone. If someone says their dad is the president, you have to say, "Oh yeah, my Dad is God". ....you know who you are.

..and for best pork tacos, I'll add Don Gabriels in West Chester to that list of best ever.

Don Gabriel's is great...

Best soft pretzel: Victory. no, no: Stoudt's. Hm, may be too indecisive to play this game. But that "this is the BEST ever" is the best feeling to have.

I say that every single day, honestly, and I mean it. It is probably because of all the killa weed, which makes me both appreciative of food and forgetful.

Dr Zibbs said...

Kristen - not a huge pretzel fan but my friend @McGlinch is. Sure he'll appreciate.

Josh - Even a 7-11 hotdog?

Living where I do, I always have the best bagels of all time right around the corner from me. Jealous much?

But while I was on my vacation I had the best fried green tomatoes I ever had at a joint called The Wreck of the Richard & Charlene. Best. Ever.

Dr Zibbs said...

Earl - I am jealous. I can't get a decent bagel around here.

(Was that too much?)

Dr Zibbs said...

JenJen - not to brag but I think I hate one uppers a little more than you.

Skylersdad - being how inconsistent they are...yeah..

Song of a Thomas - Not to brag but my Dad is is Jesus, My GrandPappy is God and My Uncle Bill is the Holy Ghost...AND he met Rachael Welsh one time.

JenJen said...

Zibbs I know someone who is superclose to the Queen of one-uppers.
Sorry to disappoint ya...

Dr Zibbs said...

JenJen - I know that person AND ..not to brag but my Dad made the crown for her. It's covered with diamonds ..totally encusted with THE MOST EXPENSIVE DIAMONDS..(and the diamonds were mined by my friend).

JenJen said...

Zibbs
Gosh I'm sorry, not to brag or anything because I'm totally not like that, but your friend, the one who mined the diamonds? That coal was on MY land and the crown was designed by My Uncle Snuffy, who is an ARTIST in Paris.





(I almost wrote that I was screwing the Queen, which would have ended this right away. DONE)

Dr Zibbs said...

JenJen - I'm really not trying to brag but my Aunt runs an art supply factory in Paris. I have the receipt that shows the art supplies that she sold to your Uncle but I don't want to embarrass you.

JenJen said...

Yah...don't tell anyone because she't totally kill me but, the Queen is my bitch.

Dr Zibbs said...

Well she must be your sloppy seconds because I had her for years. ..(Not to top you or anything..it's just fact).
